Beacon Rock is only open to climbers from July 15th through February 2nd
due to peregrine falcon nesting.
From the Washington Park's Page
Beacon Rock offers excellent opportunities for rock climbing except where it interferes with nesting raptors, primarily on the south face. The presence of the falcon nest requires that the south face be closed to technical rock activity February 1 to mid-July annually; open the rest of the year. The east face is closed year-round due to environmental sensitivity. Call the park at (509) 427-8265 for more information.

LocationOn NW corner, 50ft left along base of Beacon from where the hikers trail meets the wall. As the trail descends look for a small fir tree just above a 3ft roof.
ProtectionGear to 2", 2 bolts; rap rings.
